Design of Ground Water Monitoring Quality Networks
A brief review of approaches to the design of subsurface water quality monitoring networks is presented. A theoretical discussion about methods to estimate parameters related to information based design approaches is presented. A hypothetical problem is then constructed to analyze the effect that different estimation procedures have on extending the design of a monitoring network. Results of this analysis indicate that although different parametric estimation procedures can produce significantly different parameter estimates, the resulting monitoring network design will be relatively unaffected.
